We've heard younger Broncos like Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas say that they are hoping to raise their level of play now that Peyton Manning is the QB in Denver. It's not just guys who are still wet behind the ears who feel that way. McGahee is heading into his 10th season, but he's also talking about kicking his game up a notch so that the move for Manning winds up being a successful one in Denver. "He's one of those quarterbacks that you don't want to disappoint," McGahee said. Reported by Profootballtalk.com
